According to the interior designer, Elizabeth Lawson from Elizabeth Lawson Design, this was a true galley kitchen in an old home in the Roland Park neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland. The space planning was a collaboration between the interior designer, architect, Ed Hord, and the clients. The designer and architect opened up part of the wall that separated the old kitchen and the dining room to create a peninsula. This really opened up the space and created a more open floor plan that better suits the young family who lives there. The designers wanted to strike the right balance between modern and traditional to create a truly fresh space and I think they have achieved their goal with this two-toned kitchen renovation.

Isn’t this kitchen inspiring? I find its design refreshing, fun and full of personality… this is a kitchen that doesn’t make me yawn! 😉
Today is a really happy day around here… my hubby and I are celebrating 13 years of marriage! Trust me… it feels so much more than that and I say this in a good way. We’ve got married quite young and we often joke that we’ve learned about life together and we still do. I feel that I can say anything to him because he gets me. Many people say that you should marry your best friend and I add to that — marry someone who can always make you laugh. My husband has the gift to see humor on situations you probably wouldn’t and this makes life feel lighter…
Even when the sky don’t seem to be very clear, he knows how to bring the sunshine back to my life.
Thank you, my friends for being here and I hope you have a Blessed and Healthy day!
See you guys tomorrow!
